Description
Join ​the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE) for its next (informal) reading group! We'll discuss "Degrees of Inequality: How the Politics of Higher Education Sabotaged the American Dream," by Suzanne Mettler.

Degrees of InequalityThis is an open, public event. Everyone is welcome!

From the publisher's description:
"...the first book to explain the link between our dysfunctional politics, the nation's stagnating college graduation rates, and rising inequality in America."

"America's higher education system is failing its students. In the space of a generation, we have gone from being the best-educated society in the world to one surpassed by eleven other nations in college graduation rates. Higher education is evolving into a caste system with separate and unequal tiers that take in students from different socio-economic backgrounds and leave them more unequal than when they first enrolled."

​For background reading, check out these articles in the New York Times, Washington Post, and Atlantic.

​Though an RSVP is not required, please let us know you're coming on Facebook and invite your friends!
